All Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) accredited programs must meet certain basic requirements. One such requirement is that the Coordinated Program (CP) clearly states its mission, goals, and expected program outcomes. This outcome data collected is used to maintain or improve the program effectiveness.
The Mission for Marywood University Coordinated Program in Nutrition and Dietetics is to provide a broad based educational curriculum that includes preparation in the liberal arts as well as coordinated nutrition/dietetic theory and practice, which is based on ACEND Foundation Knowledge and Competencies with a concentration in Health Promotion and Wellness. This educational framework provides the knowledge, skills, and values required to practice as competent entry-level dietitians/nutritionists, but also for the flexibility which permits changing roles and the development of skills needed for future specializations, which the students wish to pursue.
#1 To provide quality didactic and supervised practice learning experiences that prepare students to be competent entry-level dietitians.
#2 To prepare graduates to be successfully employed in their fields, attend graduate school, or pursue other career options.
